Or continue to be coy and let people speculate about the hover buses the Region has budgeted for in fiscal year 2059. Just saying... Smile

Bombardier hiring CN to do a version of CP's holiday train to bring us our remaining 12 trains at once as a holiday miracle?
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Nice to find these archival stories from a few years back when they were ramping up capacity to deliver the various LRV orders on time!  Tongue

Lol at the photo caption "Bombardier employees work on a Metrolinx train car" when the blue clearly denotes it as an Ion train.  Ahh, modern journalism...

(Heh:  Says the guy who didn't pay them a cent to read the article, the root cause of the very modern journalism I hate.)

Internally at Bombardier, they don’t differentiate between ML and RoW. Our 504 is their “Car 6”, with the ML Pilot LRV’s being 1 and 2.

So, I imagine when they didn’t their little show-and-tell to the Media, they likely just said it was the “Metrolinx Order”.
